Prayer is a Taxable Transaction

Dear Flock:

Some comedic relief provided by my fiancee is copied below for your enjoyment.

This makes me wonder if the Internal Revenue Service will exist in the afterlife?

DISCLAIMER: THE FOLLOWING TEXT IS JUST A JOKE, NOT A THEOLOGICAL STATEMENT

A little boy wanted $100.00 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing happened. Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100.00. When the postal authorities received the letter to "God, USA" , they decided to send it to the President. The president was so amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a $5.00 bill. The president thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.

The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 bill and sat down to write a thank-you note to God, which read:

"Dear God: Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that for some reason you sent it through Washington, DC., and those assholes deducted $95.00 in taxes."
